Moring | CPD

CHICAGO — A misdemeanor charge has been filed against the person who was shot by a Lincoln Park homeowner last week. Britney Moring, 28, is charged with criminal trespass to a residence, according to Chicago police records.

At about 11 p.m. last Thursday, police responding to a call of a person shot in the 2200 block of North Janssen found a person with gunshot wounds to the wrist and chest, CPD said in a media statement.

Police said a man who lives in a home on the block fired at the person to prevent them from entering his home. The man is licensed to carry a concealed weapon, according to the media statement.

EMS transported Moring to Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center in good condition, police said. Moring was released from police custody on a recognizance bond without appearing in court.

CWBChicago reported last week that the city received several 911 calls about a suspicious person on rooftops in the area starting around 10:28 p.m. last Thursday. But no CPD units were assigned for nearly 30 minutes, even though one homeowner called 911 three times about the situation, according to dispatch records.

Moments after the call was finally assigned to a patrol car, the “person shot” calls started arriving at the 911 center.

Court records show Moring was charged with trespassing at Soldier Field on the afternoon of July 3, three days before the shooting. A recognizance bond was issued in that matter, too.
